EBPV Questions

What is the purpose and advantage of gutting the turbo pedistal and plugging the EBPV?

I just watched this video. Gutting the Turbo Pedistal

Reasons I did mine were because it was leaking oil and my EBP sensor tube was rotted out and it was acting up. I did some tests and my warm-up times were not noticeable affected with it disabled and I don’t like unnecessary mechanisms that can fail. I used a pipe tap to tap out the treads and a pipe plug to plug the hole. I also removed the flapper from inside the Down pipe flange and put pipe plugs in the flapper pivot holes.
Here are pics of when I did mine;

What function does it perform on a stock truck?

Once you go with a performance exhaust there can't be much back pressure.

It is supposed to be a cold weather warm up aid. The way it is supposed to work is when the truck is cold it closes the butterfly valve and pretty much blocks off the exhaust kinda like outing a potato in the tail pipe. When it is on you should be able to hear it and the truck should have almost no power, and if everything is working right it should blow open if you get on the throttle hard enough. After the engine is warm enough it should open and remain open until the engine cools too much.
IF (notice ‘if’ is capitalized) it were to stay closed it could cause extremely high egt and make bad things happen.

Stock exhaust or performance exhaust makes no difference to this device, it is the part that you hook the exhaust to so it is there on both setups.

Hmmm, I wonder if mine is not working right. I don't hear anything funny when it is cold and it pumps exhaust right out fast. I have on a few occasions taken off when it was cold out and the truck was cold and it would barely go.tHen all of a sudden it was ok.
